There's test coverage for this case in queryparsertest, testcase


So it works in C++ (at least in a number of cases), and it seems unlikely this
would be broken in the PHP wrappers.

The only thing I can think of is if "name" is a boolean prefix perhaps?
That's not supported with FLAG_PARTIAL (at least not currently).

If it isn't that, can you show an actual testcase?
